did we see results like this in ohio where obama won the state and sherrod brown was re-elected but republicans got 12 of the available 16 house seats. when jimmy carter was drummed out of office in 1980, he managed to carry 900 counties nationally. when michael dukakis ran for president in 1988, he suffered a 40-state landslide but claimed 119 counties. bill clinton won with 1,524 counties. do you know how many counties obama won last year? 690. that's it. 690. even though he won a convincing popular vote majority. gerrymandering wasn't a complete nonfactor in 2012. the gop probably did grab a few extra seats because of it. but the real problem for democrats is that their base of support is less spread out geographically than it's ever been, which means they can win presidential races and even control the senate, but when it comes to the house, their best, their only chance for the foreseeable future is a massive anti-gop tide, like something we saw in 2006 or 2008. short of that, the era of republican speakers could last for a long time. okay, that does it for "the cyc

sleuthing did reveal much about their feelings regarding barack obama, president. of the many, many actually relevant items left largely off the table? not one question about drones, despite the fact the u.s. has carried out 362 drone strikes since 2004. troop suicides, of which there were as many as 349 last year alone were mentioned twice. rapes inside the military estimated at 19,000 per year got five passing mentions. while israel was brought up 166 times yesterday, afghanistan, the longest running war in american history, and one that has cost almost 2,000 american lives was brought up 20 times. glen thrush, i ask you, the hearings yesterday, were they ever even meant to be hearings, or was it a trial for the obama administration? >> i was just struck by the great positive energy that chuck hagel was giving off at these hearings. didn't he look like he had just been abduct and pushed out of a moving vehicle? >> he was facing eight hours of questioning that as we showed at the beginning, in some ways had nothing to do with what he would do as defense secretary. >> i have been to several

word today from president obama. he's taking on the gop on the right fiscal course for the country. he released his weekly radio address and says it's time to finish the job of cutting the deficit by the goal of $4 trillion. >> i disagree with republicans who think we should do that by making even bigger cuts to things like education and job training or medicare and social security benefits. that would force our senior citizens and working families to bear the burden of deficit reduction while the wealthiest are asked to do nothing more. that won't work. we can't just cut our way to prosperity. >> republicans aren't holding back in their gop address today. criticizing the president over the upcoming threat of sequestration. >> what the president failed to mention was that the sequester was his idea proposed by his administration during the debt limit negotiations in 2011. and now we in the house on behalf of our constituents are calling on the president to join us in replacing his sequester with better, more responsible spending cuts. >> joining me now, correspondent for the garden, an
